Entertainment Weekly
A warm embrace of tradition and boisterous, ethnographically rich local culture.

Miami Herald
One frenetic movie that doesn't know when to quit -- and leaves you wishing it could go on forever.

Baltimore Sun
The perfect film for anyone who finds the Keystone Cops a little too understated and I mean that as a compliment.

Chicago Reader
There's something almost wearying as well as exhilarating about the perpetual brilliance of Bosnian-born filmmaker Emir Kusturica.

Boston Globe
The gusto in the flying bullets, the fleeing lovers, and the flowing music will make you want to hang around until the party is over.

Austin Chronicle
Farcical mayhem. A convoluted plot that's easy to follow but hard to describe.

New York Daily News
The slapstick is broad to the point of overkill.

There is a point in the movie when this mayhem crosses the line from wildly imaginative to downright insufferable.

Christian Science Monitor
Their shenanigans rarely run short of explosive energy.
